New Look

First came across the duo New Look on myspace a while back while working for TRACE Magazine. Then the homie Dhundee was screaming at me thru the phone saying I better get my ish straight and check out their music. Well, lucky for u, you can get a nice free sample with the free EP. HERE.

Mama wants more Stephanie Land!!!

Last night I had the pleasure of spending the evening with the lovely and talented Stephanie Land. Sometimes in this world of blogs and twitter facebooked twisted cypher of myspace, you forget how dope a face to face is. She recently launched her new site! Check it out and be inspired.

P.O.S. stays Optimistic

Coming from Minneapolis myself, I am not only very proud to have come from such a great community of music and artists, but I am also very excited to watch as the leaders in the scene continue to crash and merge genres together, making a new sound. P.O.S. is by no means new to the scene, he has been doing his thing for years and getting his music across the planet. I randomly landed on his new video the other day and had to give him some love. Cant wait to see whats next.
